Bill Clinton in town to raise $$ for Raul Martinez

Obama_2008_bill_clint_kwed_r350x2_2 Fresh off his first campaign stops for Barack Obama, Bill Clinton is in Miami tonight raising money for a longtime friend, Raul Martinez, whose challenge to Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart this week got bumped up to a toss-up in one national ranking.

The $1,000 per person fund raiser is at a private home; guests will include Democrat Joe Garcia, who is challenging Diaz-Balart's younger brother, Mario.

Reports out of Clinton's campaign stops were mixed, with the former president not mentioning Obama by name until 5 minutes into his 22-minute speech. Though he did tell the crowd he thought the Democratic nominee would do a better job than John McCain in running the economy.

Perhaps he'll be more effusive for Martinez: the former Hialeah mayor endorsed Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary.

When are the Bush brothers coming to hold a fund raiser for the Diaz-Balart brothers and why hasn't The Herald addressed that question?

The Diaz-Balarts were always up Bush's behind and now Bush won't show up because he knows that the Diaz-Balarts are as seaworthy as Titanic! Why else is he absent?

Bush did have a fund raiser for the Diaz Balarts. Listen to this - it was held on the Florida West Coast and neither Lincoln nor Mario atended. Even they are embarrassed of their support for the worst President in American history.
